More than anything the news of recent days that went against Obama -- especially the "bankrupt the coal industry" remark -- illustrates the foolishness of early voting. Why would anyone who is on the fence (or is within 10 feet of it) about their choice vote any earlier than the last possible day? You never know what surprises will be revealed.
